Specific History of This Car

Soon after its introduction at the 1966 Geneva Auto Show the Ferrari 330 GTC coupé had earned a reputation as the ‘best all around’ Ferrari—the look was elegant, the steering light at most every speed, the interior comfortable, the ride superb, the engine well mannered. It was truly a Ferrari one could use every day.

Pininfarina designed and built the GTC’s steel body, successfully blending the general design of the 275 GTS with the front-end treatment of the 500 Superfast, Car and Driver’s summary of the car’s appearance: “Class”

Underneath is the 2.4m chassis found on the 275 GTB and GTS, the engine is the 300 horsepower 4.0-litre V-12. The gearbox was mounted at the rear, as on the 275 GTB, for better weight distribution. The GTC also had independent rear suspension.
